While the above "solution" is definitely more costly to implement than
the "swapping RFID" concept Gilmore touts, it's also more possible. I
mean, if these devices are embedded in our tires then we have to trade
*tires* to swap them around. Not something people are likely to do. Of
course, we can choose to not buy those tires. At least until all tires
